I can't type in certain letter properly in text input fields on some sites. Some letters type as dots. Happens on multiple websites like ESPN.com and Netflix (submitting feedback). What is causing this? How do I fix it?

letter type as dots mid sentence. If a word starts with T then it continues to type as dots. It's a text input field not a password field though the dots are as big as normail password dots.

Start Firefox in Diagnose Firefox issues using Troubleshoot Mode to check if one of the extensions is causing the problem (switch to the DEFAULT theme: Firefox (Tools) > Add-ons > Appearance/Themes).

Thanks! It was a font or formatting issue. My Times font may be broken. I switch it to a different font and and reset the autoformat and it works now.

Right after I sent that question, I went to craigslist and the post titles were messed up and had dots too. It was weird. But it is all fixed now. Thanks!
